The Kenya Film Classification Board today participated in the 4th African Summit on Entrepreneurship and Innovation (#ASENTI2018) at the United States International University – Africa, Nairobi. CEO Dr. Ezekiel Mutua was represented by the Eastern Regional Manager Fozia Hussein at the Two-day conference that gathered young start-ups and professionals.
“The creative industry is a priority sector for driving the GDP of Africa as attested by Nollywood,” said Dr. Mutua.
Citing a report by the PricewaterhouseCoopers, Dr. Mutua said Kenya’s film industry is projected to realize Shs. 330.5billion by the year 2020.
The Board has continued to work closely with creatives to support innovations through film and TV content that inspire hope and contribute to economic growth. This is through exposure at international film festivals, the Sinema Mashinani roll out, facilitative regulation and other activities aligning the Board to the manufacturing pillar of the Presidential Big 4 Action Plan.
